The programs offered by the Department of Political Science include courses in the five fields of Canadian Politics, Political Theory, Comparative Politics, International Relations, and Public Administration and Policy. Political Science involves the systematic analysis of the theory and practice of political organizations, institutions, ideologies, public policy, public administration and law. A degree in Political Science can serve as a foundation either for further studies at the graduate level (in political science, public policy or public administration, or in any of the growing numbers of interdisciplinary graduate programs), or for careers in public administration, law, journalism, public relations, teaching, and the private sector.
